Man United open to letting Aaron Wan-Bissaka leave the club this summer
Wan-Bissaka is not expected to be in ten Hag's plans
The full-back is not expected to be among ten Hag's plans, and, in one of his first major decisions, the new Red Devils coach is reportedly looking to move him on.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: Man United will allow the defender to leave
According to Sky Sports, once again looking to rebuild, United are prepared to listen to offers for the defender this summer.
The club would prefer to sell him on a permanent deal, but would also consider a loan deal with an obligation to buy him permanently.

Wan-Bissaka, 24, has played 126 times for Man United over the last three seasons and was a regular at right-back under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The defender, however, has struggled for playing time since Solskjær was sacked last November. He has started just seven Premier League games under interim manager Rangnick, who is set to take on the Austrian national team job amid his remaining sporting director role.

While Wan-Bisska is strong in defensive one-v-one scenarios, his attacking output has been questioned. The defender has registered just 10 assists for Man United across the last three seasons.
Diogo Dalot has been first-choice right-back under Rangnick, but it remains to be seen if ten Hag wants to sign a new full-back.

Wan-Bissaka likely won't be the only face leaving the club this summer as well, with the likes of Lingard, Jones, Cavani, Pogba, Mata and many others expected to make exit.
Fabrizio Romano also tweeted that his sources have informed that Eric Bailly could be allowed to leave alongside the right-back after injury struggles and limited game time.
